Big Mountain Foods Ltd.
Big Mountain Foods was founded in 1987 by Kimberly when she both developed and produced the Original Mountain Veggie Burger at a time when there were few products for people seeking meat alternatives.
Having grown up in a vegetarian household, Kim was immersed in an environment that focused upon organic, whole foods long before these terms entered the mainstream. Her Mountain Veggie Burger became trendsetting providing a meat alternative that was both delicious and nutritious. Since 1987, the Mountain Veggie Burger has continued to evolve as Kim has travelled the world seeking out new “super-foods” to improve the nutritional quality and provide different flavours to the Veggie Burger.
Even though the Mountain Veggie Burger continues to evolve, Kim’s philosophy regarding food has not changed since she opened her first restaurant, Kits Point Café in the heart of Kitsalano British Columbia, in the early 1980’s. Her business model is simple; provide great tasting food that is also healthy. Combined with her innovative mindset and creative culinary talent, the restaurant became a huge success. Kim founded Big Mountain Foods to handle the increased demand for her products in both the local and other markets.
Although Kim also distributes other items, the Mountain Veggie Burger continues to be a success story. Her innovations have created well-balanced and flavourful food with absolutely no animal products, preservatives or fillers.
